For our R&D Manager Sophie Lee, research is unlocking information on real time gastric pH changes in broilers and layers.
Using novel Heidelberg capsule technology currently found in human diagnostics, we can see how diverse pH is within individual birds - and what effect feeding different levels of phytase has on gastric acid secretions.
The Heidelberg pH Diagnostic System (5th generation)
This research enables a better understanding of the digestive process, allowing us to see how enzymes may be manipulating gastric acid secretions to optimise digestion.

In this video interview from IPPE, Stefanie Gabler from our research team outlines exploratory studies using an in vitro system to see how different phytases can produce different inositol phosphate isomers.
Research also compares findings in vitro and in vivo to draw conclusions about how intestinal phosphatases and phytases interact with additional phytases.
Mimicking the in vivo system through in vitro tests means a better understanding of how phytases work, how they can be compared, and how to find new ones.
